Re: SIHH 2019

Yeah, they're borderline creepy and in wildly subjective taste, but I feel like these UN watches have been presented entirely without context throughout the show. And while that's not entirely unfair given the content, by the time I got to the booth, I found it quite cool that each of them is actual...

Re: New Montblanc's at SIHH 2019

Is Montblanc a richemont brand? Because these look like designs that JLC passed on. Montblanc had Jerome Lambert for awhile (JLC's former CEO who's now running Baume & Mercier), which could explain some of the design homogeny. Used to be worse, honestly. I think Montblanc's current heritage offerin...

(SIHH) heading over to Panerai for an early preview...

Not humblebragging, I promise (ok, maybe a little). But I'm about to head over for an early preview of Panerai's new stuff ahead of its unveiling later this week at SIHH. Some of it I've already seen in PDF form, and if the popularity of the 682 around here is any indication, well, it should be a fu...

Re: 2019 Watch Goals

Genuinely pretty happy with the collection at the moment, but would love a Polaris or a Geophysic. Also passed on a two-tone Seamaster 300 Master Co-Ax this year, and wouldn't mind making that right.

Re: 2018 ins & outs

Had a crazy summer for the 'in' column, and feel like I really need to reign it in for 2019. Landed these four, with a good deal of reduction in the rest of the collection: https://i.imgur.com/p5bmscql.jpg https://i.imgur.com/n3YDdrEl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6PRa9XQl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/rXuVKh6l...

Re: new blancpain fifty fathoms automatique

Looks good though I maybe would have liked to have seen a different set of markers/hands to set it apart from the SS version. It's good that it's not a LE though. :thumbsup: I would definitely get this over the SS version if I was shopping for a FF now. BP and to a lesser extent...JLC are the only ...

Nice. Fixes the one issue I've had with the steel BP - the blingy case.
Same. And the other one for me, which was the weight. Not limited either, which makes me wonder if they'll be around the $9/10k mark in a year or so... Wishful thinking?

Re: IWC Spitfire Timezoner

I loved that they took out the chronograph, but it's the same damned movement as before (bezel inexplicably adjusts both hour and 24-hour indicators simultaneously), making this a glorified 3-hander with an AM/PM indicator. Far from the proper travel watch that it is pretending to be. https://media....
